Write something which takes place: at sea.
Max has spent a large portion of the day asleep. I'm hoping he's just recovering from the unpleasantness of yesterday and that he'll be back to his usual form tomorrow.
Although, to be totally honest, I wouldn't mind too much if he slept this much every day. We managed to get a fair amount done around here!
We'd been at sea for twenty weeks,
Our supplies were running low.
The wind was deader than a ghost,
Our men were too weak to row.
The captain was looking nervous,
His faith in his crew long gone.
I'll admit that night I was sure
He'd not live to see the dawn.
I think we all made that mistake,
We failed to give him his due;
For under cover of darkness
He took to the ocean blue.
The last we saw of our captain
He was bound for the horizon;
We could nearly hear him laughing
As he waved, astride a dolphin.
